Sure, you should try mckenzie back extension exercises, leg pain radiating from the back can be due to nerves in the back, but you will also require some special painkiller for nerve pain.

Back exercises. Many people go to physiotherapists with back pain. Here are two exercises that help to relieve pain and reduce stiffness in the back: •Dear, 1. Lie on your back with both of your legs straight. In this position, bring your left knee up close to your chest. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Return your leg to the straight position. Repeat with the right leg. •2. Stand up with your arms on your side. Bend to the left side while slowly sliding your left hand down your left leg. Come back up slowly and relax. Repeat with the right side of your body Dear, low back pain are often referred for physical therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical) treatment option before considering other more aggressive treatments, including back surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems. Common forms of physical therapy include: 1.Passive physical therapy (modalities), which includes things done to the patient, such as heat application, ice packs and electrical stimulation. For example, a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterward to sooth the muscles and soft tissues. OSee Physical Therapy: Passive PT (Modalities) for Back Pain 2.Active physical therapy, which focuses on specific exercises and stretching. For most low back pain treatments, active exercise is the focus of the physical therapy program. This article focuses on active physical therapy and exercise as a means to help recover from back problems and prevent or minimize future flare-ups of low back pain Low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended. Some spine specialists consider physical therapy sooner, particularly if the pain is severe. •Read more: Exercise and Back Pain In general, the goals of physical therapy are to decrease pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent further recurrences.

Its not matter of fat if your posture is not good problem can occur. you alignment is not proper go and check you body alignment and make proper exercise according to that due to long sitting your facet joint is tight ......take hot fermentation and after that try to sit straight & do strengthening exercise & change your chair & use ergonomic chair

Fruits, vegetables, beans, and grains are excellent sources of fiber and phytonutrients. Fiber helps you feel full for a longer period of time. Phytonutrients are natural components found in plant-based foods that give plants their rich pigments, as well as their distinctive taste and smell. There are thousands of phytonutrients that may strengthen the immune system, help prevent cancer, and provide other health benefits, including promotion of cancer survivorship. Healthy fats, such as olive, flax, and canola, are very good for your heart health, and good sources of additional calories. Nuts and seeds are also sources of healthy fats. Your goal is to aim for 5-10 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables, and about five servings of grains every day. One serving is equal to: 1 cup leafy greens, berries or melon chunks 1/2 cup for all other fruits and vegetables 1 medium fruit/vegetable (i. E. Apple, orange) 1/4 cup dried fruit 3/4 cup juice here are some suggestions for a menu: breakfast (choose one from each of the following three options) 1 cup cereal/1 whole wheat bagel/1 whole wheat toast 1 cup lowfat milk/1 cup lowfat plain yogurt/1 tbsp light cream cheese 1/2 pink grapefruit/1 small pear/ 1 small apple/1/2 box raisins snacks 1-2 graham crackers with 2 tbsp peanut butter 10 kashi tlc crackers with 1 string cheese 10 medium grapes 1 cup popcorn, air popped 10 almonds kashi 7 grain bar fluids (at least eight 8-ounce cups per day) choose mostly water; sparingly opt for 100% juice (cranberry, apple, orange). Dinner meat: choose mostly chicken and turkey, baked or broiled fish: baked or grilled is best salad: every time you make a green salad, add about 1 tbsp of a healthy oil: olive, flax, canola; sprinkle about 1 tbsp of sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds vegetables: fresh or frozen, steamed or stir-fried with canola oil.

Joint pain you can relieve short-term joint pain with a few simple techniques at home. 1) protect the joint with a brace or wrap. 2) rest the joint, avoiding any activities that cause you pain. 3) ice the joint for about 15 minutes, several times each day. 4) compress the joint using an elastic wrap. 5) elevate the joint above the level of your heart. 6) if you are overweight do exercise like swimming or cycling to reduce weight. Still you don't get relief consult me via lybrate as further investigation may be needed.
